Dover: Ferry Hits Harbour Wall
Four people needed hospital treatment when a passenger ferry hit one of the harbour walls as it headed out of Dover en route to Dunkirk.
A spokeswoman for the Port of Dover said none of the injuries was thought to be serious. Paramedics treated a number of casualties at the scene.
The Dover Seaways ferry was sailing out of the port at 8am Sunday morning when it smashed into the harbour wall.
The spokeswoman added: "Our first priority is to ensure safety of all those involved and we are supporting DFDS and emergency services in supporting passengers affected by this incident.
"The crew of the Dover Seaways and our own team have immediately put emergency plans into practice to ensure the safety of those on board. The vessel, Dover Seaways, is safely berthed in the Eastern Docks. We praise all concerned for their swift response.
"Naturally the incident will be subject to our own internal investigation and that of the appropriate statutory authorities."
